Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Service (OBMCS) is Oracle's next generation Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). It was announced at OpenWorld 2016 and now offers compute, storage, network, governance, database, and load balancing services. Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Service is claimed to provides high performance, better network management, flexibility and lower cost. The new IaaS platform starts a close competition with Amazon AWS. In this blog, let's look at its network architecture.
The network architecture of Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Service is similar to Amazon AWS. It is built on the virtual network concept. In Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Service, the virtual network is called the Virtual Cloud Network (VCN). The network is comprised of Region, Availability Domain, Subnet, Routing Table, Internet Gateway, and Dynamic Routing Gateway. You can define a VCN and assign both private and public IP to your cloud instances. The following slide provides an excellent summary of the fundamental concept and the architecture.
I also include a slide for Amazon Virtual Private Cloud  to hep understand the related the concepts.
With Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Service, Oracle Public Cloud now offers much better security and network management.
